Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of a shifty-looking poacher lurking in a wood. He is looking out from behind a tree and standing among grass and bracken. ‘A poacher may slink from tree to tree and from thicket to thicket, and, unless the dogs chance to sniff him out, may lie hidden in tangled masses of fern and bramble, while the keeper passes not ten yards away.’ Richard Jefferies, ‘The Gamekeeper at Home’, 1878.
